Fall Invitational

Today I woke up at my usual 4:30 am. I decided to get up and get ready for the day since we needed groceries and Superstore opens at 6:00 am (although, I discovered, it's difficult to shop at 6:00 am because they have boxes and junk strewn all over the place! ....customer awareness really isn't their forte). However, it is nice to be able to zip around the store with no one else there. Heck, there isn't even anyone really paying attention to the self-check out tills (not that that's a good thing!)

Anyway, we grabbed some things and were off for a 7:30 am warm up at Foothills Pool. Jill swam in the morning and Peirce swam in the afternoon. I was shadowing as the Chief Finishing Judge for the entire day (translation....sit on a hard bench all day long and review finish times....yawn!)

Jill's highlights:

3 seconds off 100 breast
Lovely tea party or something while doing 200 IM (translation: added time)
Same time for 100 back
Relay team totally dominated!

Peirce's highlights:

7 seconds off 100 breast
Good entertainment for 200 IM (did 75 of fly and 25 of back....oops! DQ!)
Same time for 50 free
Took off 50 seconds on 400 free
Relay team totally dominated!

All in all it was a good day.

....not such a great day for my sore tailbone though. Time to lay down and read, I'd say!
